  • 7 Easy Steps to Flawless Skin

    Have you been eyeing the Clarisonic Opal Sonic Infusion System? Its ability to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, ease of use, and sleek design will make it an indispensable product in your beauty routine. The Opal comes with our Anti-Aging Sea Serum, which is optimized for use with the device. The Opal hydrates and smoothes the skin by lightly massaging the serum into the eye area using the same sonic technology as our Sonic Cleansing brushes.

    To achieve smooth and flawless skin, follow these simple step-by-step instructions:

    Step 1 Prior to the first use, charge the Opal by attaching the infuser to the magnetic charging base, aligning the silver stripes. Allow 24 hours for a full charge, which will then provide 45 minutes of use.

    Step 2 Remove the cap from the Sonic Infuser and set it aside. Place the nozzle of the bottle containing the Anti-Aging Sea Serum slightly above the applicator tip and dispense just enough serum to fill the tip to the brim (about the size of a small pea).

    Step 3 To power-on the Opal, press and release the power button located on the side of the Sonic Infuser.

    Step 4 Place the applicator tip flat to the skin on the crow’s feet area of the eye.

    Step 5 Apply light pressure on the applicator tip as you slowly move it in circular strokes across the rim of the bone outlining the eye. The Opal will turn off automatically after 30 seconds.

    Warning: Do not use the Opal directly on the eye, the eyelid, or within the soft area around your eye.

    Step 6: Repeat steps 2-5 to treat your other eye.

    Step 7: After treatment, gently remove the leftover serum from the applicator tip using a cotton swab or tissue. Replace the dispenser cap for safe keeping.

    skin regimen is vital as your skin ages. It’s a general fact that cared for skin looks younger – there’s no doubt about it. We’ve broken down the general points to a good anti-aging routine. Don’t worry if you’ve let your skin care regimen lapse. Take our tips and you should start seeing results in no time.

    The start of any skin care routine is cleansing. This may seem like a simple step, but finding a cleanser that works for your skin type is very important. Once you find a cleanser that is perfect for your skin, stick to it. Be sure to cleanse your skin daily, washing off makeup and daytime build up nightly before bed. A clear clean face is the first step to healthy beautiful skin.

    The key to younger looking skin is to remove old skin cells. Your skin sheds it’s dead cells all the time and they lie on the surface blocking moisture from being absorbed into the skin. A great way to alleviate these unwanted skin cells is to exfoliate. Removing these cells daily will lead to easier and deeper absorption of your other skin care products. Sloughing off dead skin cells daily will lead to glowing and silky smooth skin.

    To round out your anti-aging skin care ritual, the last step is moisturizing. Providing your skin nutrient-rich vitamins to your skin will help promote new healthy skin to grow while protecting and nurturing the skin you have. Moisturizing in the morning promotes all-day hydration and gives your skin a great base for your makeup. Moisturizing prior to bed-time enables your skin to restore itself properly during the nighttime hours.

    Once you’ve finished moisturizing-you’re done! Getting down your skincare routine is the tough part. Once you start pampering your skin regularly you will see the results of younger looking skin. Happy Sonic Cleansing!

  • Are the Clarisonic and Opal safe for use during pregnancy?

    Pregnancy can wreak havoc on your hormones and your skin. The Clarisonic’s patented Sonic Technology removes 6x more makeup than manual cleansing alone by gently gliding over the skin. The sonic micro-message loosens and removes dirt and oil from pores, clarifying skin without harsh chemicals therefore,   improving skin texture. The Sonic technology removes pollutants, oil and bacteria that accumulate on the skin giving a sonic boost to your skin care products and reducing the need for harsh chemicals. Dr. Robb lends his expertise as he answers the question, are the Clarisonic and Opal safe to use during pregnancy and on my bump?

    Dr. Robb says that both the Clarisonic and Opal are safe to use on your face for daily cleansing during pregnancy. It is not recommended that you use the Clarisonic on your growing baby bump because it’s a very delicate area, something that is very precious. You could consult you OBGYN but we hope your baby is going to know the feeling when they get older and start using their own Clarisonic.

    Dr. Robb also recently told us about what age your child can start using the Clarisonic.

    Featured Opal Secret stories:

     “Redneck” Sonic Regimen

    Well, I don’t own a Clarisonic Opal so here’s what I do instead…and don’t laugh… I use the back side of my Sonic toothbrush to help apply my night serum, (different brush head of course). I realize that this is no comparison to the Clarisonic Opal but I’m using what I’ve got because I know how beneficial it is. So until I get the real thing, this is what I do.

    Men’s eye remedy

    I am a guy who takes pride in his appearance. Recently I have been noticing my eyes have look tired and puffy (probably the increased stress of trying to run my live like a crazy person through work and school, trying to do the work of five people all by myself, deffinately not recommended..) I started to look for a solution. Your eyes can easily be the first thing someone will notice about you and they are usually first to show any signs of aging!… So I set out for a way to cure. To tackle the puffiness I began using a de puffing eye gel. I started with the Body Shop’s Eye Depuffer. It worked wonders I would notice my eyes significantly decreasing in puffiness. Much of it was extra water under the eye lids so at times I looked and still looks like I am crying, not to say my eyes get red and I make an ugly face, anyway I think you get the picture. My next step was to find a eye cream to help keep my eyes bright and awake and get rid of that oh so chic I just got punched in the eye look. I ended choosing Clique’s all about the eye, it was very feminine but the sales associate at Sephora helped me realize that the skin around a woman’s eye and around a mens eye really aren’t all that different. After that? poof those dark circles were minimized. My eyes were back in business and I am glad I took that step… lets be honest who wants to look punched and puffy?

    The BEST under eye trick

    When I was in college I worked at a makeup counter at the mall. One of my co-workers was an amazing makeup artist that had just moved from NYC so I was so excited to learn his tips and tricks. The one thing that he told me that I remember to this day and always share with people is……when applying under eye cream ALWAYS apply it and blend it from the outside of your eye inwards towards your nose. Why you ask? Well….the fine lines and crows feet that form tend to start out closer to the inner corners of your eye and expand outwards so everytime you put on under eye cream you want to be lightly tapping and blending the cream in the opposite direction they form to make sure the product really gets in there. If you put on under eye cream twice a day that is a lot of pulling and dabbing on the under eye area over time so it’s better to be smoothing it on in the opposite direction that they form. I swear this works! I used to have one line in particular that was fairly deep and I would notice it when I would get tan because it would be white from squinting while I was out in the sun. Since I started applying under eye cream from the outside of my eye towards the inside my lines have completely and very noticeably smoothed out! For some reason I had always put under eye cream on from the inside out which I know a lot us you do becuase it seems more natural to apply it this way but it’s the complete opposite of what you want to do. I love sharing this trick with people and I swear you will notice a difference if you try it!

  • Is the Opal safe to use with eye fillers like restylane?

    Restalyne is an injectible filler used to achieve a more youthful look without plastic surgery. In this video, Dr. Robb tells us whether the Opal is safe to use in conjunction with eye fillers.

    Dr. Robb recommends you talk to your skin care professional after they’ve given you the fillers.  From our experience it is perfectly safe to use after you healed up from the injections the following day. He says that if you’re worried about the Clarisonic moving the fill around your face, that isn’t going to happen.

  • Will the Opal help alleviate the look of aging around my eyes?

    Dr. Robb tells us how using the Opal to deeply hydrate the skin around your eyes can alleviate the signs of aging.

    Yes, when we invented the Clarisonic Opal, we wanted to hydrate the area around your eye better than you can with your finger.  Hydration is critical to diminish the signs of aging because as your skin loses all the moisture, it becomes dry and puffy, and you will have a lot of problems with the signs of aging. So what you want to do is use your Opal everyday twice a day to help you get the rejuvenated eye look.

  • Can I use the Opal on other areas on my face?

    The first sign of aging that most people notice are eye wrinkles. These wrinkles, as well as the dark circles and bags that accompany them, may begin to appear when a person is still in their twenties and can become more noticeable with the passage of time. The Opal does wonders for the eye, but will it work on the rest of your face? See what Dr. Robb has to say in the video below!

    Yes, anywhere where you have crepey dry skin, it is also perfectly fine to use it between the eyes and around the mouth. People love the way it feels and how their skin looks after using Opal Sonic Infusion.
